Sara Faithfull explains the correlation between prostate cancer and hip fractures to ecancertv at SIOG 2014. Patients who are successfully treated for prostate cancer could later die to complications from a hip fracture.

"Seven percent of the men [with hip fractures] in the database had prostate cancer and were treated for it," she says, suggesting that when patients are placed on androgen deprivation, doctors should follow up for hip fracture screening.
